The Peninsula ChicagoThe 20-story Peninsula Chicago sits just off—yet feels distant from—the shop and tourist–congested Michigan Avenue. An elevator ride up to the fifth floor leads guests to one of Chicago’s grandest hotel lobbies. Marble floors and gilded 20-foot ceilings evoke colonial Shanghai, a live string quartet performs out of sight, and an army of efficient concierges stands ready to answer any whim. Care to find Lake Michigan’s best smoked whitefish? Meet a craft brewer of truffle-infused beer? Get your kids a ride in a Cinderella pumpkin-themed horse-drawn carriage, or outfit them in pint-sized firefighting gear for a visit to a working fire station? The service-obsessed hotel management encourages guests to look beyond the tourist zone by arranging private tours of offbeat museums and neighborhoods. Large, light-filled rooms with French doors separating lounge and sleeping areas especially suit families with kids, as does the large indoor pool and hotel activities such Cantonese dim sum cooking lessons and weekend chocolate buffets.

The renovation started in the summer of 2015 and scheduled to be completed 2016 Q1 will solidify the Peninsula Chicago as one of the top hotels in the city. The electronics are easy to use and very helpful. The rooms are modern and beautiful. And of course the common areas are classic.
